Good morning Kathy,
Can you believe that this little girl is 5 already?! Crazy! She is my special girl and I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me such a beautiful gift of love, friendship, and protection. Berlin is an amazing dog :)
Oh and we are closing on our house tomorrow! Yahoohoo! So she will have a big, cozy house with pool to swim her little heart out and a big yard to romp around. I can't tell you how excited I am to close. I'll send you over some pics. I think once we're all settled in it will time to finally get another puppy from you.
I hope all is well, the new pups are just adorable. Makes my heart melt every time I see the emails you send me.
This is "Miah" a female pup from Ben x Ulta's May 2013 litter.
Miah now resides in Oklahoma.
Miah having fun...
Hope everything is going well. It's been a while since we've updated you on Miah. She just came back from the vet today and is doing great. She is 23 weeks old now and is 52.2 pounds. She is extremely energetic and is Very athletic!
We play hide and seek in the yard and she can track you at full speed with her nose to the ground. She loves this game very much! Probably because she always wins! Lol. She is spoiled rotten and when it's time to go to bed she whines for you to pick her up and put her on the bed. She jumps up and down off the bed all day long by herself. Tell Ben and Ulta thanks for such a wonderful pup.
This is "Ace" a male pup from Ben x Coco's January 2013 litter.

Here are some more pictures of Ace. Feel free to put whatever ones you want on the website. He loves the water. One pic is on a boat on the Mississippi. The others are on the local river. I swim with him in our display pools a couple of times a week. He is a real people person dog. He is always by my side. I know all dogs have different characters. But he never runs off. No matter where we are at outside he is always a few feet away. I think I've had him on a leash a few times. People are amazed. We take him with us everyday to our pool store. In the mornings our employees are loading up. Ace hangs out in the parking lot. Before the store is open we leave the door open for him. He just sit's there watching everything going on. He minds extremely well. I work with him a little bit as far as obedience. He just listens. It doesn't take much, he is a natural. I will keep sending pictures as I get them.
This is Miah a pup from Ben x Ulta. Photo taken 7/26/13
Miah now resides in Oklahoma.
Miah sitting. 8/11/13
Miah in a shopping basket. 8/15/13.
I've been meaning to send some photos but have been really busy lately.
Miah is doing really well and doing great on her training. She sits, stays, crawls, shakes, plays dead when "shot" and will sit at door until you tell her it's ok to come outside. Hate to tell you that she is spoiled rotten. Lol. We are also very happy that she loves the water and going boating. We'll keep you updated on her progress and send photos regularly.
Abby has grown so much and she is a beautiful girl. We went to see the veterinarian last week and got her last round of shots. She weighed 46 pounds. We have been going to the park and for walks and she loves being outside.
I can no longer grab my keys without Artie and Abby beating me to the front door. They both love going for rides and visiting Roxy. Artie and Abby have become very close and this what I wanted for him. Abby is such a sweet girl and we love her very much. My back has healed from surgery and I finished PT today so now I can spend more time with the dogs. I am planning on taking them to the beach in a couple of weeks. Hopefully, I will get some good pictures.
This is Abbey (L) and Lucas (R) litter-mates from Bo x Ulta.
They reside in Wentzville, MO with Rita & Mike.

Big German Shepherd Lucas
How is everyone? Hope doing very well..We are all good.
Congratulations on all the puppies. They are just too cute. Hard to believe Abbey and Lucas will be 2 next month. Lucas is doing well, still HUGE.., but a real mom's boy. He is just so laid back, loving, and very very protective of me. Abbey is now at 80 lbs, smart as ever, sweet when she wants to be
and also very, very protective of me. I started agility classes with Abbey about a month
ago with a trainer. Abbey is doing great. She just loves it. I can't hardly keep up with her. She has so much drive, and knows when she is good at what she does. Everyone always tells me that Abbey adores me, and always wants to please. (I try not to get a big head..lol) Abbey and Lucas both are very loyal, even at such a young age. Sent a few extra pictures of Lucas as he continues to grow. Thanks for the update on Jimbo, he looks like such a Happy Puppy, I'm sure Jim is very proud of him.
Have a safe and Happy Holiday Weekend.
This is Abby a pup from Ben x Bella January 2013 litter.
Abby now resides in Texas.
Artie and Abby playing.
All 3 playing. Artie with ball in his mouth, Roxy at the gate and Abby at far right.
all 3 playing.
Here's 3 more pictures. Abby is indeed going to be a big girl and she is already 1/2 the size of Artie LOL!. Abby, Artie and Roxy all get along well and are best of friends. I've actually observed Abby with both her ears up so it wont be to much longer before she is done teething. Roxy is an American GSD and my son rescued her from returning to a shelter or far worse. We can only estimate she is between 4 and 5 years old. She is a very loyal, protective and loving dog.
Abby enjoys playing and chewing on just about anything. Not to mention she loves going for rides in the truck.
Email received 4/27/13
I just want to let you know that Abby is doing fine and she is very happy. Artie and Abby grow closer together each passing day and we all love her very much.
I weighed Abby today and she is 34.6 lbs. What a big girl. Dr. Carver just loves Abby and he says she is one fine looking dog. I will do my best to take some pictures now that the weather is getting nice. We have had some really crappy weather for the month of April.
I had have been thinking about you and thought it would be good to send you an update. Life has been busy so it’s hard to make time to send even a simple email. We named her Madeline and are calling her Maddie. She is doing great. She is such a good, sweet, social dog and our family is enjoying her. She has been potty trained since the first week. My husband and I took turns staying home that first week and I think that helped a lot. She really is such a beautiful girl. Her ears have been erect like that since a few days after we got her and they make her look so regal. She has gained about 8 lbs. At first I thought she wasn’t eating enough or gaining enough but the last week or two she is starting to have a good appetite. I leave food out all day and where all of my friends dogs gobble their food down before the food hits the ground, Maddie takes her time and eats a little here and a little there. She is a great dog. Thank you again. Well all is well here and I pray all is well with you.

Maher and "Valor"
I just wanted to let you know that we got the results from Valor's fecal sample and with that we can officially say he is a healthy, happy puppy! Our vet and her staff absolutely LOVED Valor. He's a head turner everywhere we go and literally stops traffic! Our vet has a puppy program that they offer where you pay a sum up front that covers all shots, vaccines and any medications up to the age of 6 months so we've got him on that program. They sell individual frontline doses so every month he will go to the vet, get weighed and get his frontline dose - that's a very convenient option and more cost effective then buying different boxes every time his weight changes to a new range. We also wanted to let you know that Valor's vet who is also Dexter's new vet was very impressed with how thorough and organized all of Valor's paperwork was. As you know, that was the same reaction we got from Dexter's vet when we provided that information to them after we got him. You're very popular and well respected with the vets around here so thank you for making us look good lol!
We went and ran errands yesterday and took Valor with us, it gave Dexter a much needed break from his very energetic little brother. They both slept the entire time they were apart lol It is amazing to watch how they interact with one another. They are such smart, smart dogs! Anything Dexter is doing, Valor wants to do. If there are 100 balls outside, Valor wants the one in Dexter's mouth and Dexter just gives it to him. It looks like they're forming a very special bond. Valor saw a lot of dogs while he and Maher were waiting for me in the car yesterday and we've learned that he only squeeks for Dexter which is interesting in itself because it shows us that he knows and loves his brother. Dexter is taking advantage of that love by taking Valor's bones when Valor becomes interested in something else and finishing them before Valor even notices they're gone lol. It reminds me of how I used to take advantage of my little sister's kindness and love for me by getting her to give me (all) her candy on halloween or the toys she got for her birthday when we were kids. Crate training is going great, I got Valor a crate just like Dexter's and when he wants to rest or take a time out from all of the fun he goes in it, which is what he see's Dexter doing when he needs a bit of a break from all that spunk hahaha Valor also knows which house is ours now which is cool because he's only been there what, 2 days now, if that??
I have attached a few photos from the last few days that I thought you may enjoy.
Mother and son reunion. Coco (R) and Dexter (L) is her son she hasn't seen in almost 2 yrs! Samar, Maher drove from California to purchase "Valor" in the middle. :) Coco is hugging and kissing him. AWWW what a beautiful reunion!

Saying goodbye...Willy, Valor, and Maher.

"Dexter" and Willy reuniting.
You are unbelievable. We miss you all very much and really enjoyed spending the afternoon with you and your wonderful family. May God protect and preserve your family. You are all so kind and generous and we absolutely love you all from the bottom of our hearts. We've been talking about you all nonstop since yesterday. When I finally got cell signal and saw all the photos I got really excited.
Valor is doing great on the car ride - as long as Dexter is in his direct line of vision God forbid if Dexter changes where he is sleeping in his crate and Valor can't see him - you know exactly when that happens because he starts squeeking lol Maher says thank you for all the generous gifts and for bestowing so much of your knowledge to him yesterday he learned so much from you and he promises you this is not the last time we will see each other and he looks forward to seeing you again and reuniting us all again. He sends his best regards to Willy and your lovely (his word) daughter and son in law. It was an honor to meet them yesterday. Thank you for everything - I have no words that can describe how much that means to me - you are so kind and generous and it is a true reflection of the purity of your heart. Mama Kathy (as Maher calls you) if you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask.
Your photos are phenomenal! Mine are crappy but I do have a couple that I thought you would like, I have attached them to this email.
I am proud to relay the following story: last night we stopped at a rest area to sleep for an hour or two - when we woke up we realized that we had slept for 5-6 hours as soon as we got up we freaked out thinking we may have caused Valor to have an accident - he didn't!! He waited till we took him to the grass - pee'd and pooped immediately! What a good puppy he is - Maher could not possibly be happier.
Happy Easter to you all. May God shower your family with endless love, happiness and success.
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this photo. This is Maher and his dogs,
the puppy is 9 wk old, "Valor" (black collar male) from Ben x Coco.
The big dog is "Dexter" 2 yrs old from Bo x Coco. Maher and Samar drove from California both times to pick up their pups. This was a wonderful, wonderful day to see them again and see Dexter! God has truly blessed us with wonderful friends that we have met through our dogs. Photo taken 3/30/13.

March 16, 2013. Abby now resides in Texas !!!
Abby playing tug
Abby playing with Artie.
My two sons have decided to name her Abby. Artie was a little jealous at first but no worries he and Abby are going to be best friends. We love her so much and we are blessed to have her join our family. She will be spoiled and loved like all of our dogs. Frank and I have been friends for many years and I am glad he offered to come along. It was nice meeting you and your husband Willy.
Abby went to see our vet this afternoon. He said Abby is in good health and she is a fine looking German Shepherd.
I have attached some pictures of Artie and Abby playing tug in the back yard.
This is Rita and "Abbey." Abbey is a pup from Ulta x Bo.
Abbey will be 2 in June. She resides in Wentzville, MO.
Rita and Abbey having fun at the St. Patrick's day parade!
How are you? We are all fine.
Puppies from both litters are So Beautiful. I just love looking at their pictures.
Abbey and I walked at the Cottleville Parade Run for the Helmet today and she was such
a good girl. I received so many compliments about how beautiful and well trained she was, you would have
been really proud of her, I sure was.
She has learned so much and to be at such a large event with so much going
on she was the best she could be and walked with her head held high.
This is "Bear" almost 5 yrs old (in March) from Calla x Dakota.
Bear resides in Kansas with Melissa.
Bear the snow angel. :)
Bear lovin' the snow!
How have you been? Did you get any snow? We got TONS here! We got about 13" or so where I live, its so much snow! But my big boy Bear LOVES it! He likes to roll, and dig in it LOL I took a few pictures of him today playing in all the snow, its SO hard to believe he's going to be 5 next month! Where does the time go?
Earlier this month he got neutered :( I HATED to do it because I wanted puppies out of him, its one of the hardest things I've done -but it was for the best I suppose.
He did give the nurses a heart attack when he figured out how to open the door to the surgery prep room and escaped right before surgery.. LOL thats my boy! Too smart for his own good! LOL
But we're doing great now, and I'm looking forward to taking him to work with me! I still get compliments everywhere I go with him, he's SUCH an amazing boy!
This is Max a pup from Ulta x Bo's December 2010 litter of 12 !!!
Max now resides in CT.
Another photo of Max enjoying the ice on a HOT summer day last summer.
We are all doing good!!!.. especially your Boy Max!!!.. He gets smarter by the day..and has just been the most exceptional addition to our family... He has such a system down ...its crazy!!...he knows that when my Dad comes to pick him up..he has to kiss us all goodbye before he leaves...so now my father will say to him...you ready to go...and he runs around giving kisses...and he does the same at my Dad's house before he brings him back home..He listens so intently to everybody's conversation...my sister was telling a story at thanksgiving and in the same tone, she said something about somebody being here...and with that Max went barking at the door...Lori said what is he doing?.. I said,,,you said that somebody was here in your story....she couldn't believe it..as he was laying on the floor with his head down! Max is one loveable dog...but one hell of an intimidating piece of protection.. You would have to be a fool to challenge him. He has the scariest bark out of any of the dogs we have had. I can't say enough good about him..he absolutely loves the snow..and at times will push his whole head under...he loves chasing the birds under the feeder...his favorite is when there are doves under it...because they make that noise when they fly away...and he will cock his head and watch them. He loves rides in the truck..and wrestling matches..He loves being brushed everyday by my father...Oh..and he loves ROCKS!!!! the bigger the better!!.. he will play with a rock for the longest time..pushing it all over the property with his paws...and I mean some really big rocks!! He likes checking the bathroom to see if someone left a toilet paper cardboard roll out when they replaced the roll.. He helps himself to the old roll and plays with it..When I am working in my shop...he used to steal tools..and bring them by the flag pole...I scolded him a few times...so he takes shop rags now..somedays you go by the pole..and he has lifted a good half dozen rags...Cant say enough about him...Mom, Dad, and my family..spoil him...but he spoils us in return..He's just beautiful!!!
